If you actually want to shorten the hieght of the shaft itself you'll have to do some cuttin of the shaft. Shortening the throw distance of the shift linkage, they sell short shifters for those........very easy to bolt right on.
Later, hope this helps........

You will have to become good friends with a good hacksaw. I started by taking an inch off.... I have now takin about 3in's off and I like it...along with a eurosport weighted shift rod... cheap and easy! Good luck with that
